Until I met my current wife, those two years were the best years of my life. Much of my heart remains there.

Good day,

My father was stationed there and my siblings and myself are just curuios what he did while stationed there. We have his records but there is so much that is redacted. We know some was secret missions that he didn't share with my mom, so they say. If you can shed anyb light we would be so appreciative. His work for our country remains a mystery to us and we fell that the Cold War has been over long enough to for us to get some answers.

Blessings,

Susan Kelder

Really enjoyed my time at Hakata, touring southern Japan on days off. Left for 6924th SS in Da Nang, Vietnam 1967-68. Re-upped for promotion to SSGT (E5) and tour in Darmstadt, Germany with 6910th SS from 1968-1972. Left military when denied promotion to E6 unless I re-upped again. Worked out well-went to college, served in USAF Reserves and USAR Reserves and retired in 1991 as a Major. Lots of good memories.

had a great time at the 14th. Was good friends with Bob Arnold and John Schleis, who owned the Starlite bar. John now lives in Seattle. I still keep in touch with him and have visited him several times. We returned to Japan in 1998, and visited Bob who stayed in Japan until his death. I still live in my hometown of Milford Ohio.

Worked in Ops 98C with Ray 'Wimpy' Wimberg in R&D. I chose Hakata as a reenlistment option but my stay was cut short when the base was put on the closure list in 1971, transferred to Okinawa just as many of us were.
